Junior Tiger at St Clair Golf Club, 2009

Five-year-old Isaac Hobbs gets his drive away during a Junior Tiger tournament at Dunedin's St Clair golf course in 2009. The tournaments are an initiative by New Zealand Golf to introduce players aged 14 and under to the game. Fifteen district qualifying events are held around New Zealand, and the winners play a national tournament in Manawatū. The national winner qualifies for the World Junior Golf Championships in the United States.
